The Summit County Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) sets out objectives, actions, policies and grant programs to reduce the risk and impact of wildfire in our community.
In 2006, Summit County government, local fire districts, Colorado State Forest Service, U.S. Forest Service, towns and other entities joined forces to develop the CWPP. It identifies focus areas for prioritized fuels reduction, establishes a charter for the Summit County Wildfire Council and outlines an active process for reducing hazards in the Wildland Urban Interface through fuel reduction projects.
